Today, my work is drawn from the many places I have experienced. The spiritual energy in me is expressed on my canvas. I feed off of that expressive energy and my artwork begins to take on organic shapes and movement. I am physically and emotionally involved with my art, and I move with the colours and shapes.
Nature, the human condition, and the mystical aspect of the world around me are consistently reflected in my art, and strive to express positive energy.
